Retronaut catapults the Past to the Present through Photographs

8 Posted by - May 4, 2014 - Photography

What better way to warp your sense of time than viewing thousands of photos from the past? Discover what was considered “futuristic” in the mid-1900’s. Be mesmerized by images found in a 14th-century Flemish book depicting the origins of a modern-day sport we call baseball (click here). See the building of legendary ships and buildings and peak into what life was like way before your time.

All this and more can be found on the Retronaut website,

Personally, I could spend hours on this site!
